Historical Edmonton Homes
The Samuels Residence is located in the Glenora area at 13842 Ravine Drive. It was designed by McKernan and Bouey Architects. The original owners were Joseph and Fanny Samuels. The Samuels Residence was built in the newly developing neighborhood of Capitol Hill in Glenora. It was a showpiece of the new modernism that was emerging in home design, particularly with its flat room and rectangular forms and volumes.
This west-central house incorporates large expanses of glass that accentuate the relationship of the inside to the outdoors. Light also falls deep into the house through a row of continuous clerestory windows. An angled plan that conforms to the property lines creates a deep, front entrance garden recess, which draws visitors into the house. The landscaping around the house makes use of the Mugo pines which were added later and were popular in the mid-century Modern period to provide visual privacy.
